The eyes have it

Quote: Nice. Easy on the retinas Wink

Thanks Goggz, I never do portraits so that's useful feedback for me help guide what I need to sort in post production - so far I've done nothing more than raw the unchange raw file as a JPEG, with a couple of spots removed.

Fly past

Quote: Very well executed indeed. I didn't manage to get any of my panning shots in focus.

I didn't get it as sharp as I would have liked, and the last one where I thought I'd nailed it and without anyone in the background wasn't as sharp as this one. Oh well, have to go back and practice more Smile

Just missing the roaring fire, a glass of uisge beatha, and a good book and I could settle in here for hours. Lovely picture

Love the bronzes colours and shapes in this image

Spitfire & Mustang

Is the image as shot and the fact they appear to be almost touching wings an optical illusion? or has there been a bit of adjustment here?

Valletta Church

Love the colours and tones of the church, but there's too much shadow in the foreground for me as it just keeping dragging my eye to the bottom of the image

Dominance by LensYews


Quote: Good grief! she doesn't look like she's giving in easily either :O) that's my girl.....great capture and nice composition too, well done

I think she was protecting the smaller Brown Bear, Fudge, who had just been given an earful just out of site of the viewing platform.

well the 10 frames per seconds helps I'll admit, I've got Suzi's fall in the next five frames as well as she hits the ground and roll out the way of the following horses.

A day at Cheltenham Races 2010

Good attempt from the distance the public areas are from the track, you might want to consider cropping the image to take out the running rail in the foreground and the back of the horse at the left of the frame.

Tricks..... by cattyal


Love it, almost as good as your forum image on the horse topic. Just missing the rearing horse as they fall

Beautiful capture, the reflection is almost more vivid that the bird itself.

Chasing the Dream by fran_weaver

Chasing the Dream

Good image well timed. I agree with Danh and Campervanman about the cropping. I've also loaded a mod, with square cropping to try and make more of the angle of the horse but means scarificing some of the space for the horse to jump into and blurred the background out quickly (a bit rough round the edges) to give you and idea of the difference it can make.

Horse Play by fran_weaver

Horse Play

Well done Fran, its a good effort for someone who doesn't like horses. My comments are in line with Campervanman's although getter lower is difficult with small fences. The other possible improvement could be your positioning, so that the horse and rider are slightly more angled towards you. The rider will often be looking in the direction of their next jump as the go over the current one, or the direction they have to ride in next. After a couple of rounds you can usually identify a good position where you can get a better view of the emotion on the riders face.

Love this shot, that face just shows the love of the music, backlightlighting managed well. I'd have preferred to see less motion blur on the hands.

Woolacombe Bay

Thanks Garry, I tend to include that so people can point out if I'm doing anything wrong. Still very much a beginner on landscapes.

Thanks Louise

Woolacombe bay inlet

Thanks all.

Harsharn, I nearly took it into Lightroom to add a grad there, but it was getting late and I think I' lost most of the information in that blank section on the left anyway.

I know what you mean Paul, I turned to a technique I'd not really tried (recedeing waves) before when I didn't get the sunset I was hoping for. The timing was more difficult as I'd picked up the cable release for the 40d instead of the 400d I was using and had to resort to the timer.

Thanks Eviscera, I'll take a look.

Birthday present

Thanks Colin, if I'd had longer than my lunch break (working from home due to the snow) then I'd have gone for some pan shots to capture the motion a little better.

Jumping the last by LensYews

Jumping the last

Thanks Shawpaul, that's the one where I know I was using the settings I needed, just not quite got the image I need for my client base. I should have mentioned, my normal workflow would be using lightroom to process around 500 images from a day's racing, of which about 15% get to the website, with light touching up white balance, sharpening etc - probably too many to do too much cloning work, and maybe 10-12 to the local press etc. So as far as possible I need to remove the distracting background through choice of shooting position. The banners I have too include sometimes at the request of the organisers, who want it included for the sponsors.

Well caught, I'd never have been able to do that using only manual focus. Well done.

Igloo by Pete


The light in the doorway looks inviting, although the holes could mean a chilly night if the wind got up. Love that spill of light from the doorway though.

See Ya! by NevP

See Ya!

Well I like it, interesting expressions but I can't work out the subtext. Well executed capture. Not sure what the hand on the left is doing though.

Leyton looks purposeful in that one, good shot.

Quite agree, something my PF currently lacks.

Lovely shot and its nice to see a touch of snow there as well.
